Among their many offerings, we find them to have a nice selection of chili pepper seeds. If you are a member, you also receive a newsletter and other member benefits.
Cross Country Nursery: Offer plants and seeds. We've ordered both. Have 500 varieties of chili peppers as well as huge varieties of tomatoes and eggplants.

You'll refer to it often for descriptions and for the handy table that summarizes their chili pepper offerings.
